Baked beans from branston?! Yes we all know branston is famous for making pickle and Heinz are famous for beans, but hats off to branston I think they have given Heinz a run for there money. I recently purchased 4 tins for 99p of branston baked beans 4 x 420g in Morrison's; the baked beans have a lovely colourful and thick sauce and taste really great, the beans themselves are quite a descent size and are a nice texture. Baked beans are a healthy fat free and contain no saturated fat or cholesterol and provide your body with important nutrients such as fibre, protein, calcium, iron, folic acid and potassium. Branston is ... Read the complete review

I love baked beans; they are low in calories, filling and good for you too. I usually buy Heinz or Tesco own brand, but when Branston 50% reduced salt and sugar beans were on offer recently I decided to give them a try. Branston is probably better known for its sweet pickle than its beans. Branston is made by the giant premier foods the U.K's biggest food producer. Premier foods are responsible for many well-known brands such as Loyd Grossman, Hovis, Mr Kipling and Sharwoods to name a few. Branston beans come in a standard sized 420g tin. The beans I bought had a silver label making them stand out from the crowd. The writing on the front of the tin ... Read the complete review

I like baked beans - there's something comforting about eating them on toast or in a baked potato & they are so quick to prepare. I usually buy Heinz but their price seems to have risen everytime I go & re-stock so when I spied Branston ones I thought I'd give them a try. They were on offer in Iceland - 4 x 420g tins (twice the size of those shown in photo) for just £1. The tins were packed in a thick heat-sealed plastic wrap which is convenient for carrying but awkward for retrieving the cans. The tins were pretty much as you'd expect portraying bright orange beans & with a handy ring-pull opener on each ... Read the complete review

I am a really big fan of Branston baked beans. When I first saw them in the supermarket I was quite surprised that Branston were actually producing these. I had to buy some. The tin looked very attractive with a silver type of label on it. I think this is what drew me to them. I have always bought Heinz beans but these are far better. They are much thicker and tasty than any others. Branston baked beans are around 60p per tin. I find that these are usually on offer, for example at the moment they are two tins for 50p in Morrisons. I usually buy the multi pack with 4 tins in as I find these are much better value for money. What I like about baked ... Read the complete review

Baked beans are one thing that I will not scrimp and save on. I was always of the opinion that Heinz were the best and that I would not buy anything else. Until now that is!! Branston Baked Beans are so much better than Heinz. The sauce that comes with them is much thicker and more tasty than Heinz. I can definitely tell the difference when I eat Heinz now - they are much more watery and are just lacking in taste compared to Branston. I also find Branston Beans cheaper than Heinz as I have found them in shops for as little as 4 tins for 99p. Baked beans are healthy for you even if you are counting the calories. I believe that they ... Read the complete review
